The draw with Flamengo made matters simple for Grêmio, thinking of remaining in Serie A in 2022. In 18th place with 36 points, Vagner Mancini’s team needs to win the three of the last four matches at the Brazilian Nationals to reach the dreamed goal . According to the Infobola website, run by mathematician Tristão Garcia, the chances of relegation are 84%.

The tricolor planning is stopped for any other activity except the last four rounds of the Brazilian Nationals. Grêmio still has Bahia (away) São Paulo (home), Corinthians (away) and Atlético-MG (home) ahead. But even so, contractual pending issues start knocking on the football department’s door.

This Thursday (25), our colleague Lucas Bubols, who works for Grêmio at GE, informs that goalkeeper Phelipe Megiolaro should start the pre-season at CT Luiz Carvalho in January. This happens because Dallas FC, the North American club in which the tricolor boy works, will not purchase the 22-year-old player.

In the current season, Megiolaro played 11 times for the MLS (North American Football League). His Dallas membership expires in December and the club did not want to pay around US$ 2.5 million (R$ 14 million at the current rate) to Grêmio. The Gauchos even tried to involve the payment of defensive midfielder Thiago Santos, who also played for the team, but negotiations stalled.

Formed at Grêmio, Megiolaro has a contract with the club until the end of 2022 and his termination fine is 50 million euros (R$ 314 million). If there is no negotiation, the goalkeeper must start among those related to Gauchão.
